Daft Punk and Kanye West have teamed up for a new track “Stronger” which samples DP’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” from their 2001 album “Discovery.”
The hip-hop track features French house duo Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel’s production help as well as the sample.
“Stronger” will be the first single to be taken from Kanye West’s third album “Graduation” and is expected to be released on June 1. The album will follow in September.
The video, directed by veteran music film maker Hype Williams was filmed a fortnight ago on a beach in Los Angeles.
Uncut can exclusively reveal that the Daft Punk trademark robots make their appearence, emerging from the sea.
Kanye West previewed two new album tracks last weekend (May 25) at an intimate club sized show in Las Vegas. West performed the forthcoming single “Stronger” and the Chris Martin of Coldplay’s collaborative track “The Homecoming.”
West also got the crowd extremely worked up with a quick run through of favourites from albums “The College Dropout” and “Late Registration” including massive club hit “Touch The Sky.”
The exclusive party show was part of the Heineken Global Thirst Sessions weekend, promoting diversity in music, held at the Tao Beach Club.
Paul Oakenfold, Erick Morillo and New York’s Gym Class Heroes also played at the music sessions event which incorporated the final for the Global Thirst talent contest.
